his share of lines and the stinctions he drew between romney care and obama care and didn't say anything about helping the uninsured. how do you respond to that? is it time for romney to give more specifics? is he having a problem with that? >> easy to criticize both of them for not giving enough specifics. romney has a 59-point economic plan that most people have never looked at. i would say that is probably too specific. i think mitt romney should focus on saying things like, mr. president, we are, you seem to have a problem with profits, which my company made. but most americans have a problem with deficits, which you've rung up four consecutive trillion dollar deficits. they both have a little problem with details. but there is a big, i would strike a big contrast if i was mitt romney. i would put a working state on one side and a welfare state on the other side and i would say america would be much, much better if dollars were earned instead of dollars awarded. it is time to stop rewarding our friends and punishing our enemies and having the government treat every american

most notably, health care. >> if obama care is repealed, how would you replace it? >> actually, it's a lengthy description but number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. >> pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. keeping them honest, that assurance is misleading and a short time later, a top campaign adviser had to clarify what his boss actually meant. under mr. romney's plan, he said, pre-existing conditions would only be covered for people who already have insurance to begin with, but are changing jobs and therefore, health insurance plans. that's not who most people think of when it comes to pre-existing conditions. ironically, the health care reform law mitt romney signed as governor and remains in effect today in massachusetts does mandate coverage for anyone with pre-existing conditions, whether they already have health insurance or not. a bit later in the program, we will talk about one of the few moments that mr. romney failed to strike a tone of moderation. it concerns a great big yellow bird. that makes it on our "ridiculist" tonight. a good f

permanent. even in the living constitution and here is my second quotation from president obama speaking about his health care bill. quote, i'm not the first president to take up this cause, he told congress in september 2009, but i am determined to be the last. again, you have to ponder that she determined to be the last to deal with national health care. in other words, he considers his law progressive and progress to be irreversible. some things cannot be repealed, cannot be decisively modified, limited and this is true of the basic programs of the welfare state and true of obamacare as the newest addition to the ensemble. this is the living constitution in action, one might say. to the extend that the actual constitution, the written constitution might overrule obamacare it's the written constitution that is unconstitutional. from this point of view. because what is really what the meaning of the living constitution is it's the policy constitution. it's government as we do it now. and trying to turn back the clock on obamacare to repeal obamacare would violate that fundament
